The best vase for a single flower stalk
You can thank science for this cool, minimalistic and out-of-the-box vase
The Conran Shop Charles Guda big bloom magnifying vase, approx. RM160 at Selfridges & Co.
Just when you thought all vases are created equal, in comes this magnifying vase rescuing our homes from the ordinary. Fresh flowers are the easiest way to add a pop of colour and sophistication to a room, but not all of us are Martha Stewarts when it comes to arranging them. This gem from The Conran Shop simplifies the process in the chicest way: just pop in a stalk of flower of your choosing, perhaps a peony or a rose in a bright shade, and watch as the Fresnel lens give the flower a multi-dimensional effect. Designed as an homage to French physician Augustin-Jean Fresnel, this is one vase that'll spark conversation and appeal to the science geek in all of us.
